Single-Player RPGs / Re: FF12 HD - Zodiac Age (whoomp there it is)

Just fought the Bomg boss in Salikawood, which is the last event I remember from my first playthrough of the game 10 years ago. It's surprisingly deep into the game, in my memory I gave up on this game pretty quickly but I guess I gave it a fair shake after all.

The game does just feel better than I ever remember it being.

Give it a shot.  I'm an easy critic, but I'm never bored watching it.

Anyways....
How many here are playing this?

As a fan of the original, I had originally planned on playing FF12-Z, but I had a less than stellar experience with the FFX remake, plus S/E's promotional material appears to be advertising something different than the game I remember.  It would feel awkward to buy a game that I liked from a company I don't.

I'm still perched on the fence.

Please play this.  Please.  T____T


As for everyone else:
Better visuals (in an already gorgeous game with unparalleled visual design).
Re-orchestrated soundtrack.
Job Classes, with complex, intricate, and varied character builds to play with.
No spell queue.
No damage limit.
Proper limit breaks not tied to MP.

This game is like... one of the best Final Fantasy games I have EVER played.  In my 21 year history with the series.

As I'm playing, each new area is like a little gift: new visuals, new music, both beautifully realized, with new monsters and new loot to go after.  New Bestiary entries to unlock and complete.  And exploring off the beaten path adds an element of risk that can be thrilling as well.
Not only that, but plot and character-wise it's MUCH better than I remember, even when compared to modern games.  There's still a lot of names and locations to try and keep track of, but it all feels way less baroque than it did 11 years ago (it helps that the last games I've played are Trails 2 and 3 and Nier Automata, I think).

I can't even describe how disappointed I was with @Ranadiel completely writing this off as "boring".  He couldn't be more mistaken.  I haven't been so in love and giddy with any video game in maybe 5 years.  For some reason, I was expecting RPG Fan to greet this release with great enthusiasm.

I remember messing with that game for hours--really glad to see it come up again.

I don't remember experiencing performance issues with the game on PS3. Granted, I'm not obsessed with frame rates, but I don't recall any crazy choppiness that took away from game play.
The one thing that actually bothered me the most about the game is the drab haze that's forced upon you in the end/post game. There's a trick to get around it, but the requirements are way too specific for the trouble, in my opinion.

It probably won't run like ass anymore. 1080p 60fps an whatnot.

...Is that what it does? My copy's still shrinkwrapped...wonder if it's worth selling...

Hah, I was looking this up just Yesterday. Never played it myself, too hardcore for my tastes, but an interesting bit of history nonetheless.

I'm hoping that by the end of the year consensus from everyone that isn't a die hard Nintendo fanboy will be that Breath of the Wild was an overrated pile of crap.

Why? I mean, why would you want that? That sounds like a really spiteful thing to want...

Indeed. I don't actually want that, I'm just disappointed by the game to a frustrating degree. Like, the game could have been amazing but Nintendo had to do a bunch of derpy stuff that only hinders the experience.

Okay. Just had to make sure, the internet's practically Spite City, you know? Just wanted to stop the spread, if possible. But if you're just frustrated with the game, that's always something worth talking about.

Ben Carson is a nice reminder to everyone that even the most brilliant of one of the most respected professions can still be completely clueless when it comes to anything outside his field of study.

Also let's not make any mistakes here, it's not "our elected leaders" trying to scorch the earth, it is Republicans and it has only been Republicans for years. Their entire philosophy now is basically "government doesn't work, and we'll prove it by sabotaging everything". People seem to forget that Obamacare was a Republican plan for years and only suddenly became a bad idea because a black President passed it. If anything, the biggest failing of the plan was allowing conservatives to successfully rename it in common parlance, but their MO is always to tag things they don't like with meaningless labels and proceed to attack them while using said term as often as possible (See: "SJW", "Fake News", "Alt Left", among others)

I mean, just today we hear that John McCain has brain cancer and Obama tweets this out. There's zero chance Trump would ever have this much class and more than half the people who ran in the Republican primary this last election probably wouldn't either. Only ones out of them I'd see doing anything like this is Jeb Bush and maybe Lindsey Graham.
